​The cheapest - and priciest - spring break destinations

  • Affordable: ​Hollywood, Florida ($1,132)

    • Hotel for 6 nights: $298
    • Airfare and taxis: $374
    • Food and drink: $460

    Hollywood (not to be confused with the Hollywood that's located in California) and nearby Hollywood Beach are prime spots for a sunny spring break. The beaches and boardwalks offer prime partying spots, but Hollywood also has plenty of great spots for dining, shopping and other activities.

    This Florida city offers the best of the beach culture that has made nearby hot spots like Miami and Palm Beach world-famous, but with fewer crowds and lower prices. Transportation, in particular, is a category in which you can save big, as flights to nearby Ft. Lauderdale cost just $272 round trip. Taxi fare is also cheaper here.
